There isn't much more that is comforting on a cold day than soup and a grilled cheese. I remember eating this meal a ton when I was little so, I decided to remake this meal but instead of canned tomato soup, I made it from scratch. It was so easy and so good! Recipe from All Recipes
This recipe is very simple with only two steps, you'll have an amazing soup!
4 whole fresh tomatoes
4 cups of tomato juice
14 fresh basil leaves (I used dried basil that I already had on hand. 1tsp of dried basil = 3 tsp. of fresh basil)
1 cup of heavy whipping cream (I used 3/4 cup)
1 stick of butter
Salt and Pepper to taste
tomatoes and juice in a stock pot over medium heat. Simmer for 30
minutes. Puree the tomato mixture along with the basil leaves, and
return the puree to the stock pot.
Place the pot
over medium heat, and stir in the heavy cream and butter. Season with
salt and pepper. Heat, stirring until the butter is melted. Do not boil.
Makes 4 servings.
I also made grilled cheese sandwiches to go with this meal. I used two different kinds of cheese. Yum!
